Odysseys with Wholeness

Nicola Mary Christensen-Johnson

Earth & Silence

The Art of Voicing from the Heart

An Online Workshop

Saturday 23 September 2023


Tendrils of colour drift through the water

Skimming over the bruises

Of warped paper.




Friskily chasing each other across the drenched cavities

They play the elements of an ever-unfolding landscape

The flooded fields

The frothy waters

The raucous seagulls

The tree trunk floating off into the ethers.


Everything running wild



Yet not unconnected

Dissolving and fusing

In wholeness.

September Stillness

The precious element of water has faithfully accompanied us through our breakdowns and breakthroughs, cracking open our heart. It has unearthed hope bringing to the surface our deepest longings held captive in the cemeteries of our disappointments and frustrations. Sluicing out all fragments and residues of bitterness and animosity held too closely in our hearts, rivers of tears and joy have cleansed our inner landscapes releasing the essence of pure gratitude.

Each wave of water enfolded in our hearts and souls has ushered us towards the art of voicing from the heart, beckoning us to surrender to what is seeking expression through us. Colours, music and words have come together to celebrate life. We have picked up our pens to tell the most extraordinary story of life living itself in us, love living itself in us, as us, always fully alive, always flourishing, always unfolding unto higher orders of consciousness.

The river of awareness has gained in volume and momentum inviting us now to court the other elements that make up the many splendours of life: earth, fire and air. The next stop on our odyssey with wholeness invites us to praise Earth and to unashamedly give thanks for all the gifts that earth elegantly bestows on us. In the grace of silence, we will honour the ground that provides us with a home and an open space to walk and sing the re-enchantment of world.

My Heart Is Inditing

The purpose of the workshop is threefold:

  1. Uncovering the artform based on written language which enables us to bring the exquisite invisible into a precious and cherished visible form
  2. Developing our capacities for voicing the truths that dwell in our heart
  3. Initiating an experience of inhabiting and dwelling in the imaginal realm so as to unleash the powerful creativity populating our heart


There are three parts to the workshop.

  1. The first is a sequence of words and music taking us on a transformative voyage of discovery
  2. The second is a guided writing practice following the waves of consciousness unfolding
  3. The third is a time of sharing, not about what might have been produced – and is usually largely work in progress – rather a sharing around the experience of being with others in a creative container dedicated to written language
